Insulin resistance is a key feature in Type 2 diabetes mellitus, and macrophage mediated chronic tissue inflammation is an Important etiologic component in this insulin resistant state. This project should elucidate novel actions of anti-inflammatory signaling, and reveal the specific mechanisms underlying the anti-inflam- matory and insulin sensitizing effects of GPR120/omega 3 fatty acids. An improved basic understanding of these cellular events has the potential to lead to new therapeutic opportunities.
